About The Delancey
When you first walk up to The Delancey you'll be thrown off by the jumpsuit-wearing-ultra-hipsters that stroll out. But upon further inspection, you'll find a great space for private gatherings, a live music venue on the lower level, and a rooftop that practically puts you within spitball distance of the Williamsburg Bridge. The Delancey's ground floor has a bumping DJ with video screen graphics and a double-sided fireplace, while the bar on the roof boasts a Zen waterfall, garden foliage, and seating aplenty. Though a bar positioned between Williamsburg and the Lower East Side naturally sees its fair share of artsy tarts, the crowd is truly mixed and is largely dependent on what band's playing that night. The Scene: Nestled at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge, this three-story nightclub summons the young, the broke and the devastatingly hip. Cute 20-somethings wearing side swept bangs and distressed jeans and distressed jeans catch the East River breeze in the lunge on the first floor. Behind them, a long bar and DJ booth lead to the back room--a cozy, red velvet-swathed seating area. Downstairs, mirrored walls to expand a small place embellished with a second bar and a stage that attracts buzz-worthy bands and DJ's. - SHECKY's The Draw: There's usually a line for the rooftop bar, but it's well worth the wait. Atop the faux island getaway, palm fronds wave in the wind and guests mingle among the patio tables, a fountain and an umbrella-topped bar. For a moment, the city fades away, but don't miss the view--through the haze of smoke and well-poured margaritas, the Williamsburg Bridge couldn't be more majestic.
